Car chase.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice and five armed rob­bers ex­changed fire dur­ing a chase through the streets of Maroussi, a res­i­den­tial sub­urb north of Athens, on Wed­nes­day night. The rob­bers, who wore masks, had bro­ken into a neigh­bor­hood con­ve­nience store on Areos Street, steal­ing cig­a­rettes and cash from the reg­is­ter, but while do­ing so also set off the bur­glar alarm. Emer­gency dis­patch of­fi­cers ar­rived at the scene in time to take up the chase af­ter the rob­bers drove off in two cars, shoot­ing at po­lice as they sped through the sleep­ing sub­urb. There were no re­ports of in­juries. The rob­bers man­aged to elude their pur­suers and one of the two ve­hi­cles was later found aban­doned in the nearby sub­urb of Pe­fki. A search for the per­pe­tra­tors was un­der way.
